The sequel to the genre-defining, landmark bestseller Presumed InnocentInnocent continues the story of Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto who, twenty years later, find themselves pitted against each other once again in a riveting psychological match after the mysterious death of Rusty’s wife.

When Sabich, now over sixty years old and the chief judge of an appellate court, finds his wife, Barbara, dead under mysterious circumstances, Molto accuses him of murder for the second time, setting in motion a trial that is vintage Turow, with the courtroom at its most taut and explosive.

With his characteristic insight into both the dark truths of the human psyche and the dense intricacies of the criminal justice system, Scott Turow proves once again that some books simply compel us to read late into the night, desperate to know who did it.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Scott Turow’s new novel is the dedicated fiction-reader’s version of El Dorado: a driving, unputdownable courtroom drama–murder mystery that is also a literary treasure, written in language that sparkles with clarity and resonates with honest character insight. I came away feeling amazed and fulfilled, as we only do when we read novelists at the height of their powers. Put this one on your don’t-miss list.”

    Stephen King

  • There are so many twists and turns in this one you'll never guess what really happened. The story is expertly narrated from the main characters' points of view by Edward Herrmann in the male parts and Orlagh Cassidy as the female characters ...Herrmann masterfully portrays the stoic Savich, his confused adult son, and the relentless defense lawyer Sandy Stern, who is weakened by cancer. Cassidy is superb...the quality of the writing is high, and the narration sterling. AudioFile
  • Narrators Herrmann and Cassidy give quality fully vocalized readings, making listeners want to tackle this in one sitting. You won't need to have ever read the first in order to enjoy the second. But do both, and take them in order, if only just to double your pleasure. Sound Commentary
  • “Turow has set new standards for the genre, most notably in the depth and subtlety of his characterizations…The kind of reading pleasure that only the best novelists—genre or otherwise—can provide.”

    New York Times

  • “No one writes better mystery suspense novels than Scott Turow.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “Scott Turow not only knows what his readers want, he delivers just about perfectly…Turow is the closest we have to a Balzac of the fin de siècle professional class.”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “Of all the lawyer-storytellers who have clambered onto the bestseller lists in recent years, Scott Turow is the champ. Not only are his plots absorbing and his characters persuasive, but his sentences flow with an artful cadence.”

    Washington Post Book World

  • “One begins with admiration for Turow’s skillful evocation of the thrill of detection; one finishes fascinated by his deft probing of the mysteries of character and family. Like John le Carré in the realm of spy novels and P. D. James in that of mysteries, Scott Turow has the goods to transcend the limitations of the genre.”


  • “Fans will not be disappointed. In the jaded world of bestselling authors, Turow has always seemed refreshingly uncynical. He’s not just cranking out formulaic moneymakers. Tracing Rusty’s path allows Turow to explore serious issues including aging, marriage, raising children, and death…But Turow remains at his best conveying what hasn’t changed since 1987 or, really, since the beginning of time: the darkness of the human heart.”

    USA Today

  • “Turow brings a literary sensibility to a grit-and-gravel genre: if he calls to mind any comparison, it’s to John le Carré. His novels are shaped by a studied bleakness, an introspect’s embrace of the gray-zone ambiguities of modern life.”

    Boston Globe

  • “Turow is well established as one of the greater writers of modern legal thrillers…Turow’s prose is beautiful and his observations, particularly the perceptions of small-scale human vulnerabilities, can take your breath away.”

    Times (London)

  • “Mesmerizing prose and intricate plotting…His best novel since his bestselling debut, Presumed Innocent.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller
  • A 2010 CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Finalist

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Andrea | 2/20/2014

    " An interesting idea, and I liked the ending, but it took way too long to meander its way to where it was going. And the author assumes you have spent the last 20 years obsessing over the characters from Presumed Innocent; if you've never read it, or read it and forgot most of it (like I did), you're going to spend a lot of time wondering what the big deal is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Andrew Singletary | 2/16/2014

    " Liked this much more than I did "Presumed Innocent". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Lisa | 2/12/2014

    " Well, it wasn't as good as Presumed Innocent! But I loved the characters and all the twists and turns that Turow takes you on, keeping you guessing until the very end. I loved the love between father and son despite a very imperfect relationship. A good easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kp | 2/3/2014

    " I couldn't stop listening to this book! I would have given it 5 stars, but I guess I was just a wee bit disappointed in the ending. Somehow I was looking for something a little more surprising or in your face... like the end of the first book, Presumed Innocent. Also, one of the reasons I loved this one was because I did read Presumed Innocent recently enough to remember what happened at the end... how Rusty's wife was involved there. I felt her secret should have or would have been exposed somehow. I guess I was disappointed that it wasn't. And if you hadn't read book #1 , I know you could really like this book, but I'm not sure you could love it without book #1. Both of these may not be reasons to take off one star, but somehow that ending just marred it a bit for me. Otherwise, very compelling and interesting! "
